If you're running on carpet, and you're really committed, you would be better off starting with the B6 kit (no "d"). It has a better configuration for rug racing that would cost a bit of $$ to achieve from the "d" kit.
We recently made a friend who is very happy that he went with the B6D Club Racer kit. My son has the $100 Futaba 3PV and is very pleased with it. And receivers are under $40. That Hitec charger was a good choice. When racing Stock, I would recommend lipos with at least 110C rating. There are many good ones out there. SMC is a good brand for quality at a low price. A lot of the fast guys around here are also running Voodoo Cells.
